How the AFL Ladder Works

The AFL ladder is a pretty simple one to understand. Teams play 23 games throughout the home and away season, and record 4 points for a win, 0 for a loss. A draw would result in both teams recieving 2 points, a rare occorence in AFL. 

The tiebreaker if two teams are locked on the same amount of points is percentage points, which is a simple equation of points scored divided by points allowed. At the end of the home and away season, the top eight teams will play in the finals. 

AFL Finals

Since 1998, only one team has won the AFL Premiership after finishing outside the top four on the ladder. It's extremely important to do so if you have aspirations of winning the flag, as a top four spot at the end of the home and away season gives you a double chance should you lose your first final. 

The top four teams after the home and away season play off against each-other in the 'qualification' finals, while teams five-eight play off in the 'elimination' finals. The two winners of the qualification finals get the week off and head straight through to the 'preliminary' finals, while the losers square off against the winners of the elimination finals. Check out the bracket below for a more in depth look at how the AFL Finals work.
